This article has been on the playground for almost 2 years now.

It covers the issue of the FTDI cable using RTS instead of DTR. The workaround is not perfect, but tolerable most of the time. Code improvements always welcome.

A related post on the adafruit forum provides a similar solution using python instead of perl.

Even google... but let's not go there  ]:D
• Upload doesn't work? Do a loop-back test.
• There's absolutely NO excuse for not having an ISP!
• Your AVR needs a brain surgery? Use the online FUSE calculator.
My projects: RGB LED matrix, RGB LED ring, various ATtiny gadgets...
• Microsoft is not the answer. It is the question, and the answer is NO!


I use Ubuntu 10.04 32 bit with Arduino 0022.  It works fine with Duemilanove (FTDI) and Uno.

My Duemilanove works fine. It's only my Boarduinos and Adafruit FTDI cable that have the problem.
